New Material Opens the Door to Next-6G Electronics 

Millions of cellphone users might not know it, but their phones rely on a small barium-strontium titanate (BST) part to tune into signals for clear reception. That’s all well and good, but researchers know that while today’s cellphones, including the newest 5G phones, operate at frequencies below 6 GHz, the next wave of 5G phones and anticipated 6G cellular communications will operate at frequencies above 30 GHz where BST doesn’t perform well.
